And lose your happy home over those puppies!
I can see my dog right now thinking it. lol
Subject: WHY HECTOR?
The dog's name is Princy. So why the Hector in the title?
Nice homely stuff though...I visualise outakes of this unexpectedly inserted into an adult film concerning, perhaps, a man suddenly faced with a paternity suit and having twinges of conscience after denying all responsibility...
Excellent cartoon featuring clever story-line, Great animation and cute dogs. There are some plot-holes, and the print looks a little worn, But it's still worth downloading.
Subject: Great cartoon, but a bit confusing!
I have loved this cartoon since I was a little girl. But there's a few things that bug me. For one, if the dog's name was Princie, then why is the cartoon called Hector's Hectic Life? Second, what's with never showing the character's faces? We only saw the master's feet and her voice with the heavy Russian (or whatever) accent. And third, after Princie nailed the dog door shut, how did the pups get back inside? I love this cartoon, but that's been bugging me for a long time.
Subject: Not one of the better Famous cartoons....
The Paramount/Famous cartoon studio (formerly the Fleischer studio) usually made some fine cartoons in the 1940s, as evidenced by many of the Popeye and Little Lulu films. That cannot be saud for this particular film. I didn't download it, but I've seen it before elsewhere.

Prince, a dog, is threatened with cold weather by itÃÂs master if it does one stupid thing in the house, but, if itÃÂs good, then the owner promises a surprise on Christmas morning! So this being a cartoon, you know whatÃÂs liable to happen. ThatÃÂs right, something or someone will arrive to make itÃÂs life miserable! That something is 3 puppies, the similarities to Prince made me assume that their his, although thatÃÂs never revealed in this) and they instantly cause havoc in the house. Prince sees to it that his master doesnÃÂt discover the puppies causing this mess, and that makes for some pretty quick cleaning once the puppies, for example, make a mess out of the fishbowl.
This was amusing, the animators had some clever ideas on how the dog could get out of some quick call dilemmas. The only problem I had was with the instant schmaltzy ending. Like what made Prince act like that?
Subject: how dull
dont know why this has got five stars, completely lacking in style, narrative and pretty much everything else. when compared to the other gems available here, its really not worth downloading
A charming little cartoon that still holds up very well after so many years since it was made.
Subject: Cute Toon
Very well done for something other than Looney Tunes. A very cute piece.
